White Co. BOE considers future building needs

By Dean Dyer/WRWH
CLEVELAND - The White County Board of Education recently heard a report from a facilities study committee they appointed about the future building needs of the school system.

The committee, made up of teachers, school administrators and community leaders/parents, presented two plans to the board, with emphasis on one plan that calls for converting the Jack P. Nix Primary School into a central office facility and moving most of those students to the Intermediate school after adding some additional classrooms.

Both plans, which are designed as a five year plan, call for moving the Ninth Grade Academy to the high school campus after adding some class rooms there. Both plans also call for building a new middle school.

Superintendent Paul Shaw said he's not pushing either plan. He said they both have their merits and the board will be looking at them closely. The board will examine each plan, ask for input from the public and hopes to make a decision about which way to go by next spring.
